that has been avoided at least for now and christine romans gets out the magnifying glass and exposes some of the pet projects that are getting huge amounts of your tax dollars. so let's now take a look at some of the big winners contained in the fine print. first up, hollywood, $430 million in tax breaks to foster tv and film production in the u.s. also cashing in, railroads to the tune of $331 million. the tax credit is tied to maintenance of the tracks. puerto rico and the virgin islands, listen to this, they'll see more than $220 million in tax dollars returned, they were collected on rum produced there, and imported to the mainland. and that iconic american sport nascar racing will get a windfall of $70 million. christine romans is here to break it down for us. christine, these sorts of business incentives are not new, but what's the argument for providing them and putting them in this bill? >> well, i mean one man's pork is another man's job creator, right? the point here is that some of these are extenders, some of these are business sweeteners meant to help them continue to do busi
'm christine romans. it redefines who is rich and who is not and sets the bar pretty high. individuals making more than $400,000 and couples making more than $450,000 will jump from 35% back to 39.6%. setting the bar at $400,000 instead of the $200,000 the president wanted means only 0.7% of tax filers will be hit with that rate increase. the top top earners came out pretty well after all. it's true, they also face higher taxes on their investments. the rate on dividends and capital gains rises from 15% to 20%. but it could have been worse. the idea to tax investment income as ordinary income subject to a 39.6% rate was scrapped. that saved millionaires and billionaires billions. and, yes, estate taxes are rising from 35% to 40%, but how about this sweetener for the wealthiest americans? the first $5 million of an estate is exempt. it could have been $1 million. and that exemption will now be capped for inflation, adjusted for inflation. so, yes, taxes are rising for the super rich. but they're not the only ones. under the new law, three-quarters of americans will pay more. those in the middl
not what we all expected to see, we're in the red, but only by a wee bit, christine romans is here with me today and analyzing whether we should have an up or down arrow. >> that's what you should see, because the job market is treading water and it basically in december looked just like november, at the end of the year you saw just enough job creation, ashleigh, to absorb new workers into the workforce but not meaningfully lower the unemployment rate. it's treading water overall is how i would describe it. >> treading water and yet when you break down the sectors and that's really important to do, you can explain that later in the program, there's growth in each. >> there's growth coming in. health care 45,000 jobs created in health care, i've seen that for more than a year, one after another in health care. some are good-paying jobs, some jobs are not and they're not ladder jobs in health care, but you are seeing health care growth there. food services and drinking places apparently people were going out to dinner and celebrating in december, celebrating maybe the coming end of the world
. christine romans, we've been talking about the consequences of not having a budget, a serious plan to deal with debt and deficits. but a number of prominent democrats point out the debt problem isn't that much of a problem. money is basically free many america and republicans should stop obsessing about it. >> a new narrative and they're getting bolder with it. the debate is the way liberals and conservatives see the world. those on the left have no problem with the government taking a larger role in the economy. they believe spending and borrowing money is a good thing because it stimulates the economy. economists like paul krugman, liberals, they argue it's the money the government owes itself. the u.s. is borrowing from itself. as long as the tax base grows the treasury can keep that debt under control. robert reich, he says washington needs to stop obsessing over debt. he says the government should spend more, not less, if he want a stable recovery. and conservatives by contrast, they believe in a smaller government. they think the government has little or no role or a limited role in

. christin ayers back where she was last night at that apartment complex in pittsburg. christin, what's the latest? >> reporter: well, this story has definitely taken a bizarre twist. when this all happened yesterday, it sounded pretty straightforward. police told us a man stabbed an intruder who was breaking into his home. today police are saying there is indeed a twist, that the entire break-in was orchestrated by the burglar victim's wife. >> our victim was targeted by his wife. >> reporter: pittsburg police say charmaine guerrero taijeron wanted her husband to move out of the apartment she shared with him. but he wouldn't. so she enlisted the man she was cheating with, matt parker, his brother charles, and two other men to intimidate her husband. >> she plotted the burglar with her boyfriend in an either to scare him and persuade him into leaving the residence. >> reporter: after two weeks of planning, yesterday morning, charles parker, salgado and lindsey used the keys to get into the house. they may have had plans to try to steal marijuana th

thing about the -- a couple of things about the diesel fuel, christine brings a great thing about where your fire house is located but what are our practices in the fire house, and are your extractors plugged in when the rigs are on or they're plugged in and blowing into the apparatus floor and with some of our standing orders with the ambulances, i know for sure they're supposed to stay on all the time at a scene, you're at a house in an hour and your rig is supposed to be on outside, that's addressing some of those policies within our department, it's like, well, we're told you have to leave the rig running to keep the power up or something, well, come on now, you know, can't that not be changed a little bit, so i think that that is, you know, it's the diesel fuel we know is something cancer-causing, the other thing that came up with me is not a question but a comment with fire houses that i know and just starting to look and there's been some talk in our department, why do we have cell towers on our fire houses and there are some fire houses that have them and they're in places wher
